Description

A method for controlling an electrically adjustable sliding roof of a motor vehicle

The invention relates to a method for controlling an electrically adjustable

Sliding roof of a motor vehicle according to the preamble of claim 1. Furthermore, the invention provides a sliding device and a motor vehicle to implement such a process relates.

It is known, touch-sensitive touch panels, so-called touchpad, as

use controls in vehicles. Such touch sensitive touchpads have a two-dimensional sensor structure and detect the contact of one or more fingers for example, based on the concept of "mutual capacitance", the mutual capacitance.

"Mutual capacitance" is the capacitive coupling between objects or the capacitance that occurs between two charge carriers or conductors, said current flowing through said one charge carrier or printed circuit, passes over into the other. in a

capacitive touch sensor occurs mutual capacitive coupling between an X and a Y-electrode armpit. The measurement according to the "mutual capacitance" is connected to the electrodes of a sensor layer which serves as a receiver, and the electrodes of an opposite sensor layer, which serve as a sensor implemented. The

Junctions each x-armpit electrode of a sensor layer with the Y-electrodes of the other shoulder sensor layer are defined as nodes. A multi-touch system is based on the measurements of the mutual capacitance at each node of the sensor, so that the positions of multiple simultaneous touches can be tracked on the touch sensor.

When using the touch pad as control elements in the vehicle, for example, as an operating element for an electrically sunroof, are further

to meet safety requirements in order to prevent accidental operation.

In addition, the operating unit with the touch-sensitive touch pad must in particular meet respective requirements of licensing regulations. the method for controlling an electrically adjustable sliding roof of a motor vehicle with such an operating unit works The more sensitive is the sensor of the touch-sensitive touch pad, the more robust.

In order to further process sensor data from the two-dimensional sensor structure, the sensor data are interpolated. The interpolation of the sensor data only leads to a good result if the sensor data is complete, ie when the sensor data for the entire orthogonal matrix has been made.

Object of the present invention is a method for controlling an electrically adjustable sliding roof of a motor vehicle to provide by means of a touch-sensitive touch panel as an operating unit, as well as a sliding roof device for a motor vehicle and a motor vehicle with a roof construction, by means of which the sliding roof particularly easy to operate ,

This object is inventively achieved by a method having the features of claim 1. Furthermore, this objective is through a

dissolved sunroof device having the features of claim 7 and by a motor vehicle having the features of patent claim 9. advantageous

Embodiments with useful developments of the invention are specified in the remaining claims.

To provide a method for controlling an electrically adjustable sliding roof of a motor vehicle, by means of a touch-sensitive touch panel as an operating unit, by which the sunroof is particularly easy to use, the process steps described hereinafter are provided.

An adjustment of the sliding roof in a closed position by a first

Swipe effected via the touch panel. The movement of the sliding roof during an adjustment may, for example with an electric motor which is controlled by the control unit, are caused. The closed position is the position in which the sunroof fully closes an opening in a roof or headliner of a motor vehicle. By wiping an occupant of the motor vehicle, for example, with one or more fingers across the touch-sensitive touch panel, particularly in the direction in which the sunroof must be adjusted to close the opening of the roof of the motor vehicle, the adjustment of the sliding roof causes in the closed position. This is particularly the case when the sunroof is in an open position. The sunroof can automatically be adjusted into the closed position even after the termination of the wiping movement.

In a further method step, the adjustment of the sliding roof, in which is

Open position caused by the first opposite second wiping movement over the touch panel. The open position is, in contrast to the closed position, a position in which the opening in the roof of the motor vehicle is at least partly or completely released. The second, the first wiping movement opposite wiper movement is, for example, a wiping movement in which the occupant of the motor vehicle wipes across the touch-sensitive touch panel, particularly in the direction in which the sunroof must be moved to achieve the open position. The sunroof can automatically be moved to the open position even after the wiping motion.

The occupant of the motor vehicle so wipes at two wiping movements, preferably in the direction of an adjusting movement of the sliding roof. Thus the sunroof is particularly easy to use, since this corresponds to an intuitive movement.

In a further process step, a specific driving of the sliding roof, depending on a position or movement of the sliding roof, caused by a touching of the touch pad. That is, there is a possibility to control the sunroof, which is dependent on a current state of the sunroof. Thus, another adjustment of the sliding roof can for instance be effected by a tapping on the touch pad when the latter is in the open position than when this is in the closed position. The activation may also cause another driving even at a position between the open position and the closed position. Another exemplary state when the sunroof is being moved between one of these two positions, and thus moves. Tapping corresponds to, for example, substantially a press, for example, with one or more fingers against the touch panel without performing a wiping motion. Thus, the sunroof is because it is driven not only by wiping movements, but particularly easy to use, even by the most easily managed by an occupant tapping the touch panel. Such a tap may for example be coupled to a particularly intuitive driving the sunroof.

A touch-sensitive touchpad, touchpad also called Touch Slider is this perceived by a user as particularly innovative and has a particularly enthusiastic potential.

In an advantageous embodiment of the invention, it is provided that a stopping an adjusting movement of the sliding roof by tapping the touch panel is effected. Thus, the occupant of the motor vehicle does not have to wait until the sunroof fully execute a command before it can enter the next command to adjust the sunroof. Tapping during the adjustment of the sliding roof thus represents a kind of universal abort command. An occupant can therefore take a control command immediately returned. Accordingly, the sunroof is particularly easy and intuitive to use.

In a particularly advantageous embodiment of the invention, it is provided that an adjustment of the sliding roof in a lifting position by a tapping on the touch panel is effected at a non-moving sunroof. When the stroke position is different from the open position and the closed position position, which is also in an adjustment of the sliding roof from the open position into the

is the closed position and vice versa usually not passed through the sunroof. For example, during an adjustment of the sliding roof from the closed position to the open position - or vice versa - this leads essentially by a translational movement. That is, it moves on rails for example, along, so that release the opening in the roof of the motor vehicle at least partially or is sealed. When the stroke position of the sliding roof rotates from the closed position in

Substantially to a fixed point, often a front end of the sliding roof, so that a gap in the roof of the motor vehicle is released. In the example, this gap is then side remote from one of the forward direction of travel of the motor vehicle, so that generation of noise is especially reduced by a running wind while the sliding roof can be further used for a ventilation of an interior space of the motor vehicle. The sunroof therefore functions as a kind of valve, usually the sunroof is first moved to the closed position for adjusting the stroke position, before it then performs the rotational movement directly. An advantage of the stroke position, so that less noise is produced in the interior during travel of the vehicle than with a sliding roof in the open position, but that further a sun protection for the occupants of the motor vehicle is given and these can be supplied with fresh air. In a non-moving sunroof so by tapping the touchpad particularly easy a method of

Sunroof caused in this advantageous position. In a moving

Sunroof can incidentally, for example, suffice two times, a single tap for effecting the adjustment of the sliding roof in the lifted position, wherein the first tap causes the stopping an adjusting movement previously described.

If the approval regulations for motor vehicles in a specific country, the embodiment of the invention in the above described manner does not allow, the embodiment of the method is concretized in that an adjustment of the sliding roof in a stroke position is effected only by a tap when the does not move sunroof and is in the closed position and not when it is in the open position or any other position.

It is also advantageous if it is provided that an adjustment of the sliding roof, which is not moving and is not located in the closed position, is effected only in the direction of the closed position as long as the touch panel is touched. Is That is, the occupant of the motor vehicle can make a manual adjustment of the sliding roof from the open position toward the closed position. He can

Adjust sliding roof in a position between the open position and the closed position. That is, it can thus, for example, through the sunroof

Decrease shared opening in the roof of the motor vehicle manually. In other words, an operator pushes the sunroof so long on the touch panel until this has reached a desired position, particularly between the open position and the closed position. As soon as he ceases to tap the touch panel, the movement of the sunroof is terminated. In order for a particular position of the sunroof can be particularly easily be set manually by the user, the operation is intuitive. It has been shown to be particularly advantageous when the tapping on the touch panel is registered only when caused by the tapping movement of the touch pad. In this movement may be, or for example, a tilting of the touch pad to a specific axis and a movement of the touch pad in the vehicle vertical direction, ie in a lining of the roof of the vehicle inside. The movement of

Touch panel can be very small here, for example, 1 millimeter or less. In part, it can be very difficult to distinguish between a particularly long wiping movement and a mere tap on the touch panel by the touch-sensitive touch pad to distinguish. For this very expensive sensors in the touch panel needed and / or complicated algorithms to distinguish where they prove necessary, which require a high computational effort. Because the touch pad is moved by touching and tapping on the touch panel is registered only in this movement of the touch pad, this distinction can be implemented in a particularly simple and inexpensive.

At the same time, it is for the user no longer necessary for the two

to wipe wiping movements faster than the touch panel as provided at a certain speed, so that the operating unit between a wiping motion and a tap may differ. Thus the sunroof is now even easier to use.

It is furthermore advantageous when the tapping of the touch pad or the wiping movement over the touch panel with a finger and / or more fingers of a tapping on the touch pad or a wiping movement over the touch panel with another body part and / or object is distinguished by an algorithm and is in

Dependence is triggered by this distinction. In other words, the sunroof should be able to be controlled via the touch panel only with fingers, and not with other parts of the body and / or objects. Thus unwanted releasing, for example, with a forehead, a nose, a knee, a foot, an elbow or a ball can be avoided. For the sunroof to be very reliably controlled. Furthermore, it is no longer necessary in order to avoid a constructive measure that such a false tripping is possible with another body part and / or subject matter. It is especially not necessary, the control unit of the sunroof in a well of a

, Also known headliner to sink headliner. This makes it possible to design the interior of the vehicle at the site of the operating unit with the touch-sensitive touchpad as a smooth surface, resulting in a particularly aesthetic impression.

The above in connection with the inventive method

Advantages and embodiments described above apply in just such a way for the

Sunroof device for a motor vehicle with a sunroof and

Control device with touch-sensitive touch panel as an operating unit, which

Control device is adapted to the sliding roof according to one of

to control the previous options.

It is also advantageous if the touch panel of the sliding roof device includes a switch which is switchable by a movement of the touch pad is. Such a switch may be a mechanical pressure or rocker switches in particular that registers the movement of the touch pad. Thus the very simple distinction between a swipe and a tap of the touch pad is cost and space conveniently realized.

The above in connection with the inventive method for controlling an electrically adjustable sliding roof and with the inventive

Roof construction advantages and embodiments described above apply in

just such a way, for the motor vehicle with the roof construction. It is contemplated that the touch panel is disposed on the roof lining of the motor vehicle. This arrangement of the touch pad to the headliner of the motor vehicle corresponds to a particularly close arrangement of the sliding roof itself. This positioning corresponds to a situation in which a user of the sunroof intuitively thought the control unit. Thus the sunroof is particularly easy to use.

Further advantages, features and details of the invention will become apparent from the following description of preferred embodiments and with reference to the drawings. These show in:

Fig. 1 is a schematic perspective view of an interior of a

Motor vehicle with a sliding roof with a sunroof device and control device with touch-sensitive touch panel as an operating unit; 2a-c schematic views of the various movements to and Fig.

Controlling the sliding roof by means of the touch-sensitive touch pad.

Fig. 1 shows in a schematic perspective view of the interior of a 0

exemplary motor vehicle 12. The inner space 10 of the motor vehicle 12 is defined by two side doors 14, a headliner 16, and a front wheel 18 is limited. ready Furthermore, two seats 17 for respective occupants of the motor vehicle, and a steering wheel 20 and a center console 22 with respective controls 24th

To the headliner 16 of the vehicle 10, a sunroof 26 is provided with a

Control unit 28, which includes a touch-sensitive touch panel 30 is disposed. The sunroof 26 is shown in its closed position, that is, it covers an opening in the roof lining 16 completely.

The sunroof 26 can be adjusted in this closed position by a wiping movement 32 via the touch panel 30, which is schematically shown in Fig. 2a. For this example, an occupant of the motor vehicle 10 with his finger 34 must have the

Touchpad 30 wipe in the direction of arrow 36 shown. Thus, the occupant wipes across the touch-sensitive touch panel 30 from the direction of the sunroof 26 10 toward the front wheel 18 of the motor vehicle This also corresponds to the direction of movement of the sunroof 26 from the open position, in which the opening in the roof lining 16 of the vehicle 10 is at least partially released, in the closed position.

FIG. 2b shows a schematic representation of how an adjustment of the sliding roof 26 into the open position by a movement of the first wiper 32 opposite second wiping movement 38 can be effected. For this purpose, the occupant of the wipes

Motor vehicle 10 30. That is, with his finger 34 in an exactly opposite direction on the touch-sensitive touch pad, he inserts his finger 34 on the touch panel 30 of the windshield 18 in the direction of the sunroof 26, which here is the moving direction of the sunroof 26 from the closed position in the open position corresponding to. Both wiping movements 32, 38 are thereby detected by the touch-sensitive touch panel 30 for example by means of sensors of a multi-Capacitance-touch panel. Fig. 2c shows a further schematic view showing how a specific driving the sunroof 26 in response to a position or movement of the

Sunroof 26 is effected by a tap 42 of the touch pad 30th For this purpose, the occupant of the motor vehicle 10 pushes with his finger 34 on the touch panel 30, which is also illustrated by the arrow 44th

This tap 42 in the form of a depression can also move the touch panel 30 in the direction of arrow 44 in an alternative embodiment. The tap 42 can be registered by a mechanical pressure switch then, for example, which is switched by the movement of the touch pad 30 in the direction of arrow 44th Thus a particularly simple and cost distinction between the two

Wiping movements 32, 38 and a tapping 42 possible.

While the two wiping movements 32, 38 effect full automatic opening or fully automatic closing of the sunroof 26, a tap 42 of the touch pad 30 are assigned a plurality of specific controls the sunroof 26 in response to the position or the movement of the sunroof 26th In a non-moving and is in the closed position of sunroof 26 of this example, in a lifting position, after a tapping 42 of the touch pad 30 can be adjusted. When the stroke position is a position in the example, only one facing away from the windscreen 18 gap at the end remote from the front wheel 18 side of the sunroof 26 is released by rotating the sunroof to its front, the front plate 18 facing longitudinal side.

Another option is a manual closing at a standstill and not

sunroof closed 26. This means that the sunroof is in the open position or a position between the open position and the closed position and does not move it. 42 by touching the touch pad 30 and then stay of the finger 34 on the touchpad 30 of the mechanical pressure switch is for example connected permanently conductive. As long as this switch is turned on, the sunroof 26 is moved from its located at the beginning of the shift position toward the closed position. Once the occupant of the motor vehicle 10 takes his finger 34 from the touch panel 30 and thus ends the tap 42, the switch is no longer conductive and this closing movement is stopped. Thus the sunroof 26 is particularly easy to adjust in an individual position. In a moving sunroof 26 a tap 42 of the touch panel 30 causes a stopping of this adjustment movement. For an active, so be adjusted sunroof 26 thus an adjustment is interrupted. This is for example possible without the touch pad is moved by tapping 42 30 but 30 by merely touching the touch panel This one is particularly easy

Operation of the sunroof 26 possible.

Overall, with the use of a touch-sensitive touch panel 30 as

Control unit 28 for controlling an electrically adjustable sliding roof 26 a particularly high customer enthusiasm, a high acceptance connected by a user and an intuitive understanding of the operating unit 28th The fact that a

touch-sensitive touch panel 30 between an operating movement by a finger 34 and a control movement by other body parts and / or articles

may differ, it is also extremely reliable. Moreover, this has no constructive measure, for example, a sinking of the touch pad 30 in the

Headliner 16 of the vehicle are provided in a well 12 to prevent unintentional operation of the sunroof 26th This allows more design freedom are possible, in particular may be linked to the position of

Control unit 28 is a smooth surface can be designed to the headliner 16 of the vehicle 12th
